The Biochemistry major helps students explore and expand their knowledge in science and science-related fields through coursework, opportunities with faculty-led research, and engaging with a rich community of undergraduate and graduate students as well as world class faculty. Our students use the tools and perspectives learned in the classroom to tackle today’s biggest issues and graduate prepared for a wide variety of career pathways.
Many of our graduates have gone on to work in science and science-related fields, such as biotechnology the pharmaceutical industry, academia, science communications, and policy. The Biochemistry major can also support those who wish to pursue graduate or professional study, such as medical school, veterinary school, or other healthcare-related fields.
The Biochemistry major is offered through both the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) and the College of Letters and Science (L&S). The major coursework requirements are the same across CALS and L&S. General education requirements differ between colleges.
